Adaptor #3 ...almost.

I have gone thru two that there was no way to jury-rig or modify to work. A third came: the 'Mobile Device Holder'. However, its jaw only opens to 53mm.

With a Dremel tool, I defeated the stop and was able to gain the few mm to open the jaws - now out-of-round.

You'd better be taking pictures of Civil War statues for how long it takes to position it. A suction cup works very well to hold a camera but you would almost need it to be pre-marked with tape as the range of position is too wide with the small available adjustments.

I only had an old phone at the shop, and I may be wrong, but would it not be better if the camera or holder blocked backlighting?


The wood/dowell holder one of you crafted is looking very good about now.

Update... PhoneSkope makes two universal adaptors - all the ones I had seen were the smaller version. One of the large version popped up on Amazon - used. This one came without the typical second piece that is the 'phone case' portion but was cheap.

With some trusty self-adhesive Velcro I am able to mate my wife's old iPhone 6 case with the eyepiece grip. I have yet to use it in earnest, but the proof-of-concept is validated. Next, I adapt a case for my wife's, newer +model.
